and their families have received insurance cancellation notices. do you think medicare advantage maybe obama cares next victim? and if so, what might beneficiaries in pennsylvania expect over the coming years in terms of plan choices, costs, forgone benefit offerings and provider networks? >> thank you, mr. chairman. indeed, i am concerned about the future of medicare advantage. as i said in my opening statement. the work we've done on the implications of aca cuts, for example, in pennsylvania would suggest that in 2014 there would be an average loss of benefit, beneficiary of about $2200, that this is about a 19% reduction in those benefits. and that we would see a decline in -- about 113,000 pennsylvanians. those numbers for 2014 are of concern, but i am more troubled by the trajectory over the succeeding five years of the full cuts under the affordable care act as to whether medicare advantage will remain a viable option within the medicare program and deliver the comprehensive benefits. i just want to echo the statements that we heard in many of the opening remarks. the medicare population is
